KMU Panel

DIGITALISIERUNG UND INNOVATION IN KMU

Manche Veränderungen sind unaufhaltsam, manche sind zwingend nötig. Die Digitalisierung und der technologische Wandel treffen die KMU unmittelbar und führen dazu, dass unternehmerische Ressourcen neu gedacht und zielführend eingesetzt werden müssen. Bei der Digitalisierung handelt es sich nicht um eine Modeerscheinung, sondern um ein Thema, welches über den Fortbestand und den Wettbewerbsvorteil eines Unternehmens entscheiden wird.

  • Wie erkennen Entscheidungsträger_innen in KMU, welche Innovationen für ihr Kerngeschäft entscheidend sind, welche produktiv genutzt und monetarisiert werden können?
  • Wie gelingt dabei die Balance zwischen bewährten Methoden und agilem Innovationsmanagement im KMU?
  • Wie unterhält man eine traditionsorientierte und innovative Unternehmenskultur, die Mitarbeitende täglich motiviert am selben Strang zu ziehen?

Diesen und weiteren Fragen aus dem Publikum stellen sich vier Unternehmer*innen und Führungskräfte aus global agierenden KMU unterschiedlicher Branchen während einer Diskussionsrunde zu Technologie, Digitaler Transformation, Kultur und Innovationsmanagement im KMU.
